"FEEL LIKE LIVIN'"

Verse 1 [Riff over verse]
What is this feeling that I feel?
And why does my joy it always steal?
My strength it kills when I'm climbin' up this hill,
Tryin' to find Your perfect will. What's the deal?
Is this Your will? Or am I listenin' to Satan's spiel?

I gotta know whether it's right,
This endless cycle of my life. Yeah.
Is this all part of Your big plan
To help me understand that I can't even stand
Without You, Jesus, there to hold my hand?

Verse 2 [Riff over verse]
Jesus, I remember You told me once:
You gotta be my only reason for existence.
Tryin' to make it in my own flesh,
I'll just wind up in a mess.
If I wanna do my best,
You suggest I leave the rest to You,
Surrender and undress! 'Cause …

You must be all I'm grabbing onto for dear life.
All that keeps me sane when I've gone through the fiery trials.
I can't put my faith in this big world, a nice girl, the mission field.
These things will never fill that great void that lies in my soul
That cries out for You and You alone.
I need a love that won't let go of me!
Yeah, I cry out for You and You alone.
I need a love that won't let go of me. -

Chorus 1
'Cause when I fall [when I fall], Jesus, You pick me up.
When I'm low [when I'm low], I know You make me high!
When I frown [when I frown], You put that smile back on my face.
When I feel I'd rather die, You come and breathe into me life.

Verse 3 [Riff over verse]
I must admit I am so prone
To try and make it on my own.
I try to prove to You what I can do,
But I end up in a stew, tryin' to do what I can't do.
I need You to shine through
And push this gruesome pride out of Your way.
“Yes!” to You, Lord, is all I wanna say!
Yeah.
Help me to remember every day
That I am only clay on the Master Potter's spinnin' tray.
Have Your perfect way, come what may.
I'll obey and yield to You today! -

Bridge
You make me see my need for You.
The solutions to the problems that I go through
Is just to see my need for You,
That I indeed cannot make it!
You make me see my need for You.
The solutions to the problems that I go through
Is just to see my need for You,
That I indeed cannot make it!

And I cry out to You and You alone,
I need Your love that won't let go of me!
Yeah, I cry out to You and You alone,
I need You, Lord, to fill this void in me! -

Chorus 2
'Cause when I fall [when I fall], Jesus, You pick me up.
When I'm low, I know You make me high!
When I frown [when I frown], You put that smile back on my face.
When I feel I'd rather die, You come and breathe into me life.

Key Change/Lead Break
When I fall,
When I'm low
I know You make me high!
You put that smile back on my face,
You make me feel like livin'.
Come and breathe into me life.
